Anything with a glass screen is fragile, and that means all current ebook reading devices.

The Plastic Logic looks good, but won't be out in time for this year.

By the end of next year I'd expect there to be several sturdy ebook readers with non-glass displays.

Would like to maybe surprise him with it for Christmas, loaded with many of his favorites and other things I think he'd like. I would much rather him grab a reader on the way out the door than his Nintendo DS Lite.

Suggestions? I'm not opposed to used, either.
